Young Dr. Kildare (Lew Ayres) is still being trained at General Hospital by old, crusty Dr. Gillespie (Lionel Barrymore). This time, he tries to rehabilitate Gregory Lane, a brain surgeon depressed over losing too many patients (and incidentally Kildare's romantic rival for nurse Mary Lamont). Lane's losing streak takes a new turn when one of his patients survives...but seems to be insane. Or is the man's strange obsession with Friday the clue to a mystery? To find out, Kildare must take a terrible risk.

Kildare keeps up his standards
An average entry in the Kildate series enhanced by a strong supporting cast and by the production values to be expected of MGM.
Good wholesome entertainment that was just right for 40's moviegoers

No, it's not a "short film" as rq52 states. Not sure where that came from. it's nearly an hour and a half long.
Having said that, the film is wonderful. Haven't seen it in years. Thanks for the upload. Can't go wrong with Lionel Barrymore.

Call for Dr. Kildare.
Enjoy these short films from the MGM library. Anymore in this series in the future of IA?
